    My favourite of the series!

    I waited to write this review hoping I would be a bit less emotional mess than I was when I finished the book, but I don't think there's hope for that. I absolutely loved Alex and Clara and their story to happily ever after. I think this is my favorite Copper Ridge novel, it just hit me in the core, and touched every single emotion on its way. Alex Donnelly is a war veteran, the youngest brother in the dysfunctional Donnelly family. His parents did a number on him by the emotional neglect, and enforcing the thoughts of him not being enough, not being valued or cared for. His best friend died while they are deployed, and left the family ranch for Alex's care, to make sure his sister, Clara, will be set for life as the only surviving member of the family. Clara Campbell (that last name with her eating habits is just perfect!) has lost every member of her family, yet she is surviving, barely functioning, yes, but continuing on. She has lived her life on the family ranch, teaching herself how to live, how to take care of herself and manage life with so much loss surrounding her. She is a virgin with limited life experience outside her safe circle, yet with a vast knowledge of life, loss, sorrow, and survival. Her loneliness was heartbreaking, how death has taken everything dear to her, leaving her gasping. Yet I am not sure which is worse, her destiny, or the one of Alex's where his parents choose to leave him behind and ignore him instead. They have the feelings of solitude and survival as the common factor as other wise they are the complete opposite. The amount of emotion the author has managed to fit on each page of the story blew me away. The feelings are raw and real, they are tense and bottomless. They are both broken inside, vulnerable under the tough exterior. They have hidden the burden of pain from the world with smiles but with each other, they find the courage and the challenge to be true to themselves acceptable. I love how the story was built with long, deep, difficult conversations where the characters had a chance to air out their emotions, their disappointments, and triumphs of life. The conversations between Alex and Clara, the talks between Alex and his brothers, they go deep into their thoughts and feelings, to a mentally naked place where there's nothing left to hide. These characters truly get to know each other, giving a solid foundation to built their relationships on, instead of just being present, or physically satisfying their needs. They are able and willing to do the hard things to heal, to grow, and to find their peace and place in life. The story is not all angst and tears, it is well built with a balance of dark and light. There are joy and cheer, there are moments of laughter, amusing banter, brotherly love, and passion and tenderness between a woman and a man. Yet instead of going overboard with sexual tension, the author goes deep and exposes all the difficult, hurtful inner thoughts and emotions, giving the story beautiful depth and graceful character development. Wild Ride Cowboy is easily one of my favorite stories from 2017 ~ Five Spoons

    Contemporary Cowboy Romance

    Wild Ride Cowboy by Maisey Yates Copper Ridge #9 The Donnellys #3 This is the first book I have read by this author but not my last. The book was well written, the characters well developed and the story believable. I enjoyed the story and when the book ended wanted to know more about the Donnelly brothers, the women at the winery Clara works part time at and wondered if Asher the barista would find love and if so with whom. In this book Alex Donnelly has returned to the family ranch after being discharged from the military. He is there to help on the ranch but has also been given the task of helping his buddy Jason’s younger sister – now alone as both parents and her brother are dead. Clara Campbell is in a funk and crushing on a barista when Alex steps into her life and begins to drag her out of the doldrums. Though he is ten years older than her at twenty-one she is a woman and knows what she wants – Alex. There are ups and downs and issues to deal with BUT there is eventually a happily ever after and a hook for Liam Donnelly’s story which is next in line. Thank you to NetGalley and HQN for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Emotional and Uplifting Visit To Copper Ridge

    Paying a visit author Maisey Yates' Copper Ridge, Oregon, always feels a bit like coming home. Tight-knit community, the feel of small-town living, the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, all work so beautifully when brought together in Maisey's books. I'd been looking forward to getting Alex Donnelly's story in WILD RIDE COWBOY, and loved every bit of this book. Maisey does an excellent job of crafting characters with multiple layers, of people just like the rest of us that have much more going on than meets the eye. Both Alex and Clara are moving through life projecting an image that hides so much of what makes up the real them. Maybe it's something about Copper Ridge, maybe it's becoming part of something bigger than themselves, of having the opportunity to move beyond the exterior that people have come to expect. No matter the reason, both of these beautifully broken people bloom and flourish under the care and keeping of each other and those around them, and I just adored the unfolding of their story. WILD RIDE COWBOY has all of the hallmarks of the other books in the Copper Ridge series. Angst, heat, scenes sexy enough to bring both a blush and an 'oh, my,' and humor aplenty. I figure that, if an author can make me laugh, cry, and fan myself in the course of one read, it's a good one, and Maisey has done an excellent job of all of these. WILD RIDE COWBOY is another win for me, and an easy 4 absolutely enjoyable stars. I can't get enough of these characters, and am looking forward to getting the lowdown on the backstory between Clara's friend Sabrina and Liam Donnelly in CHRISTMASTIME COWBOY. If you haven't met good folks of Copper Ridge, you're missing out. Do yourself a favor and read these books; they're a trip you'll be glad that you took.

    Heartbreakingly real...

    Wild Ride Cowboy is delectably stunning, emotionally intense and hard to let go of. She wants love, he needs love, but guilt and a promise stand in the way. For Clara life has been one devastating loss after another. Now the sole survivor of her once abundant family, she buries herself in work and unrequited dreams. Alex is a reminder of a loss too fresh to endure. Her brother's best friend is dealing with his own grief and guilt. A promise has brought him face to face with destiny. Clara is the missing piece of his soul. Will he allow fear to deprive him of his heart's desire? The feelings are heartbreakingly real, after all Copper Ridge is the place where second chances go to begin.
